This seems to support Windows(1), but running setup.py yields a "OS-X only" (not verbatim) error...

(1) Looking at the source, it implements a nice abstraction over Sessions, which can be backed by either pty (unix) or named pipes (windows). Bonus points for not using the heavy-weight libwinpty.exe which can be found in similar projects (e.g. jediterm)

OS X only is because setup.py is using py2applet, which seems to be for creating app bundles on OS X.

What is wrong with libwinpty.exe?

No screenshot?

Is there anything that differentiates this from gnome-terminal, iTerm, etc?

On the ToDo list is search history. Isn't that the shell's job? Or are we talking about something different?

I think that means ability to search within the terminal scrollback buffer.

I read this yesterday, and then today for the first time I wished I had a way to search my scroll buffer. :)

instructions to build on mac?

>python setup.py py2app.

No idea about dependencies, I don't have access to an OS X machine.

Should the title be a show hn?
